[cheers and applause] and second -- -- second, you (bleep) hated him. haaaated him. hated. and third blocking a secretary of defense nominee that has nothing to do with your current rediscovered moral outrage at american deaths overseas whilst copping to maybe a little payback is the antithesis of your campaign slogan so pardon me, sir, but perhaps it needs an update.

their presidential relative would have said. what i can say, what i do know about herbert hoover, he had a successful first half of his term passing bipartisan legislation for trade, the smoot holly bill. some suggest it was a major contributor to the economic slowdown. others suggest it's been vastly overstated. but it ultimately passing bipartisan legislation comes down to a president's ability to lead and to work with the congress. and hoover had been in washington, secretary of commerce for eight years before he became president and food administrator under president wilson beforehand. if you have bipartisan relationships on both sides of the aisle. very close with president truman and joe kennedy. relationships that spanned both sides of the aisle. presidents work their will. able to get bipartisan legislation through. and i -- i think you can look at hoover's history and extrapolate from that how he might view the current situation and polarization in washington. >> john taft, would your great grandfather could go along with that? the bipartisan style of previous presidents not hap

whiskey wasn't working. he was ready to shop around in a way that herbert hoover, by temperament, could not have done... uh, and try one method or another. if the president had little time for keynes' mathematics, he showed interest in numbers that told how many americans were still without jobs. in the first four years, the roosevelt administration launched the nra, ccc, wpa-- a virtual alphabet soup of programs to relieve unemployment. newly employed workers spent more money, creating more jobs. by 1936, it appeared that the depression was ending. it was time for a balanced budget. central revenues are increasing. emergency expenditures are decreasing. a balanced budget is on the way. does that sound like bankruptcy to you? roosevelt won a landslide re-election, but the celebration was brief. he cut spending. in october 1937, the stock market took another dive. unemployment began to rise once again. suddenly it appeared that the past four years' progress would unravel. president roosevelt may have been an economic conservative, but he was a social liberal. he saw rising unemplo

a big role, one that republicans have long embraced. in 1930, even as herbert hoover was trying to balance the federal budget, he urged large scale expenditures on infrastructure. despite all this, infrastructure spending is politically dead. president obama invited congressional republicans to a private screening of "lincoln" hoping that they would see compromise in action. of course, they refused. perhaps he should try to get them to watch the splendid new american experience documentary on the making of the panama canal. 100 years ago the united states completed what was then the most expensive, complex but ultimately successful government program in human history. it was a project where everything went wrong. the french had tried to build the canal a few years earlier and despite putting the builder of the suez canal on the job, they left in total failure. the first chief engineer quit after the first year. his replacement left, as well. only would the third did the project start moving. yellow fever killed thousands of workers, caused others to flee in fright. the engineering
